As 2020 comes to a close, the festive season is finally upon us! While many are stuck at home for the holidays, there are plenty of ways to keep the magic this year. TV helped us get through the beginning of the year and it’s here to get us through the end too.
From comedic gags to soulful symphonies, check out these fabulous holiday drag specials to make it the most wonderful time of the year.
Drag Queen Christmas 2020
This year, 10 legendary drag queens host A Drag Queen Christmas 2020. Sasha Velour, Shea Couleé, Jaida Essence Hall, Brooke Lynn Hytes, Thorgy Thor, Jackie Cox, industry icon Lady Bunny will all be performing. Additionally, Trinity The Tuck and Nina West are emcees of the production. This special can be viewed on demand from DragFans.com
“Unfortunately, COVID has sidelined our tour this year,” producer Murray Hodgson said in a press statement. “This would have been our fifth season on tour and there was no way we were going to let down the fans this year, so we’re making it available “on demand” for fans all around the world. Fans can watch the show with family and friends as many times as they want throughout the entire holiday season.”
The Jinkx and Dela Holiday Special
After the success of Hulu’s The Happiest Season, Jinkx Monsoon and BenDeLaCreme join forces again for their own Christmas special. The two clash over traditional views on holiday cheer while plotting a Yuletide show of their own featuring musical numbers, visual gags, and more.
“We’re grateful to have Hulu’s support of a film made by queer people, for queer people to be part of their expansive holiday content lineup,” said DeLa in a statement. “Cheers to the gayest (and happiest) season!”
Drag Out the Holly: A Holiday Extravaganza
Even more, RuPaul’s Drag Race favorites Alexis Michelle, Jujubee and Peppermint join the American Pops Orchestra and Lagoona Bloo for virtual Christmas concert broadcast.

New Years Queens: Goodbye 2020
While it may not be loud parties and confetti filled concerts, RuPaul’s Drag Race girls are here to bring back some sparkle into NYE. New Years Queens will feature a lineup of 16 popular drag queens.
“2020 has been a rough year, to say the least, especially considering many performers and drag entertainers all over the world have been out of work. It’s an honor to host this event with such remarkable talent,” said Peppermint in a statement.
